For the believers of the Sikh religion, the Golden Temple is maybe the most sacred place, home of the Guru number 1 of this religion (there are 10). Once in front of the temple, they must pray and bow down with their head touching the floor. Ar= ritual and procedure conducted by every believer of this religion.
Here we are always at the Golden Temple and precisely there where all the service was created: the kitchen. The Sikh term to describe this place is Langar: kitchen that provides free food (vegetarian) to all visitors. This is also known as the largest free kitchen in the world... a title certainly admirable.

Welcome to the mess hall! Finally is the meal time... strictly for FREE! As already widely reported, in Amritsar are prepared about 500 meals every 10 minutes. Where do they go? Inside the stomachs of the visitors gathered in these huge mess halls where people sit on the floor on long carpets.
What 's behind the preparation of chapati at the Golden Temple? The processing is divided into two distinct phases, phases separated by a wall.. two adjacent rooms one from the other, to ensure a huge amount of chapati to serve.
Two kids inside the room of the Golden Temple where is the "chapati machine" (one of the few in the world). This machine produces this type of bread very famous in India. Thousands and thousands of chapatis ready to be served continuously. The machine can cook up to 20kg of flour in a single half hour.
This sacred place for the Sikh religion is really admirable for its contribution to society, guaranteeing a service that is unrivaled. First, as described in the previous photo, there is a free shuttle service from the train station to here.
In the past turbans were wore like helmets, for protection during the war. Nowadays, especially in certain states such as Punjab, these are seen more like normal clothes, and are shaped in many different ways and colors.
In Amritsar there is the famous Golden Temple, a holy place, crucial for the Sikh religion. Thousands of visitors come here every week from all over India... not only for the sacredness and the beauty of the place, but also for the incredible and admirable work that is behind this, for the past 400 years.
This is the famous Golden Temple, a temple completely in dedicated to the Sikh religion. In the Sikh religion there are 10 Gurus (Masters) and this is 'the most' important place where the first Guru was living. The structure itself, is awesome, maybe not like the Taj Mahal, but for what gives to the community should replace it as a "Wonder of the World".
